DIY Pottery Barn Wall Art

I found a piece of artwork from Pottery Barn that I wanted, but it was $359, and I didn't want to pay that. So, I decided to make my own. I went to Hobby Lobby and found a sign that was ready to be painted and it was already framed. I also bought 4 different color blues. I bought a paint brush but realized I would rather use a 5-in-1 tool to spread the paint. When I got home, I realized I needed the pain to be thicker. When I googled it, it said to add baby powder and glue. I didn't have the glue they recommended or baby powder, but I came up with the idea to add sheetrock powder to thicken it up, which is what I decided to do! I put the paint in the bowl and added the sheetrock to the texture that I wanted. I got a measuring tape and measured the sign and made 3 lines so that the 4 sections would all be even. I then applied the paint starting with the creamy white, then the light blue and went darker. It took 45 minutes to dry. Then I hung it above my dresser. I love how it turned out.
